The 3 x 2 property was in desperate need of a makeover as the basic kitchen and laundry layout was becoming increasingly restrictive for the growing family occupying the home. The brief for the new design was to maximise concealed storage whilst achieving a fresh, clean and open feel throughout the space. As a result, the kitchen layout was modified from an enclosed ‘U’ to open ‘L’ shape with the addition of a moveable island bench in the center of the room. The dark cabinetry and wall finishes were replaced with gloss-white cabinets and fresh off-white paint. In addition the dated vinyl was removed and replaced with contemporary timber laminate flooring, which was extended throughout the open areas and secondary bedrooms. We think the crisp glass splash back is the perfect backdrop for the new fire engine red toaster and kettle!
Similarly in the laundry, storage was maximised with a new broom closet and over and under bench cabinets. A gloss-white finish to the joinery makes the small area feel as airy as possible. An overhead dryer has also been incorporated in addition to some much needed bench space, which had previously not existed. A beautiful timber-look tile in soft taupe has been used on the floor and splash back to keep the overall scheme homely and gentle on the eye.
“From the very first meeting to the clink of the champagne glasses celebrating the completion of works, Hun.Ter Design Studio’s Kathleen Hunter exceeded our expectations beyond measure. Her ability to listen to our vision and translate that into thoroughly detailed drawings for each space was remarkable – our strict timeline would no doubt have been unachievable without the high-level of detail included.
